Nashville bakery Five Daughters Bakery, known for its 100-layer, croissant-style doughnut, is opening a location at Ponce City Market. Owners Isaac and Stephanie Meek plan to be up and running by early spring. The couple, who have five daughters, made the announcement on Valentine’s Day—the bakery’s third anniversary.
In addition to their signature 100-layer doughnut, the bakery also sells a variety of cake and brioche-style doughnuts (including vegan and paleo,) cookies, and pastries. All of Five Daughters’ doughnuts and baked goods will be created daily at a kitchen facility off of Chamblee Tucker Road and then delivered to the bakery’s retail location at the market.
General manager Cheyenne White told Eater Atlanta Five Daughters will be located close to popsicle purveyor King of Pops in Ponce City Market, alongside the food hall’s other dessert and sweets shops. The shop will serve drip coffee from Nashville’s Honest Coffee Roasters.
“Atlanta is one of Isaac and Stephanie’s favorite cities to visit,” White said of the decision to open at Ponce City Market. “Atlanta has always been at the top of their list for future expansion.”
Isaac is a third generation Nashville baker. He began Five Daughters out of the couple’s home in Franklin, Tennessee and sold his doughnuts and baked goods at area farmers markets. The Meeks opened their first Nashville location in 2015 and currently have four shops in the city and one shop in the resort town of Seaside, Florida.
